The Mayor and Town Council are happy to announce that Secaucus received a reimbursement of $772,250 from FEMA for emergency repairs on the North End berm after Hurricane Sandy. The 2012 hurricane was one of the costliest disasters in New Jersey, with over $30 billion in damage caused by high waves, wind gusts, and a storm surge spurred by high tide. Several areas in the Town, including coastal flood-mitigation infrastructure, were impacted. Emergency repairs to the north end berms were completed and the Town applied for reimbursement for the cost of repairs. Even though the process took years, the Town’s administration completed every step of the process meticulously and consistently followed up with FEMA. These efforts led to the reimbursement of $772,250 to the Town.
